Kindle Unlimited Subscription FAQ

1 How many titles does Kindle Unlimited contain? Kindle Unlimited offers over 1.4 million titles.

Started with 640 thousands titles, but now the Amazon owns the biggest catalog (1.4 million titles) which exceeds its competitors Oyster or Scribd. Although none of the major publishing houses have allowed their books available on Kindle Unlimited, Amazon has exclusive books from its self-publish platform and some small publishing houses. In another words, it is lack of books from famous authors.

Since there are more and more authors choose to self-publishing, the Kindle Unlimited library is growing bigger and bigger. On the contrast, the Oyster has closed its ebook subscription service. Since almost all the books from Kindle Unlimited are Amazon exclusives, you can not read them on anywhere else.

I have Amazon Prime and you are allowed 10 books per month. Prime Reading works the same as Unlimited with no time limit and return if you want to check out another.
